Guide To Free Bets

Almost every bookmaker provides free bets or welcome offers for potential new customers in order to get you signed up. There is a range of offers out there for you to claim, ranging from match-specific enhancements right through to no deposit free bets.

Signing up to a bookmaker and claiming your free bets gives you the opportunity to get a feel for them, whilst also possibly winning some money for your efforts in the process. With the huge number of bookies that are licensed in the UK, there are plenty of potential free bet sign-up offers, which means there are plenty of bonuses to be claimed.

On our free bets page, we have some of the best free bet offers listed to help you make your mind up when it comes to signing up as a new customer. We also have details on free bets for existing customers if you’re already signed up – all of which you can find on our Bookmaker Offers Pages in further detail.

What is a Free Bet?

A Free Bet is offered by a bookmaker in a bid to get you signed up and enjoying betting with them. Real money is often required in order to claim your free bet, and they are often given as a bonus for joining or earned by being loyal to them.

The majority of free bet offers require you to wager between £1-£10 as a ‘qualifying bet’. These are usually done on a selection with enhanced odds or to unlock a much bigger larger of free bets.

Bet £5 & Get £30 in Free Bets from BetVictor (Subject to change) is an example of this and is one of the most popular free bets in the UK, but in order to unlock your bonus, you must read the terms & conditions before betting to ensure you meet the criteria.

Types of New Customer Free Bets

There’s a variety of types of free bets available to new customers when signing up to a bookmaker. We’ve listed what they are and what they entail below:

  • Matched Deposit Bonus Free Bet

A matched deposit bonus is one of the more common free bets offered by bookies to new customers. This type of bet sees the bookie match your first qualifying bet, not the actual deposit as some websites state, so be sure to check the T&Cs before. Matched first deposit Free Bets can range from anything from £10 right to £100, giving you the potential for many bet credits or bonuses. Bet365 offers a great matched deposit bonus, for example.

  • Enhanced Free Bets

Enhanced Free Bets give you the opportunity to place a bet on an event at much bigger odds than promoted in the sportsbook. Examples of this include fancied favourites such as Manchester City to beat Huddersfield at 25/1 when the actual odds were 1/10. Should your selection win, your winnings are paid out in either Free Bets or cash, which makes them very popular.

  • No Deposit Free Bets

No deposit free bets aren’t particularly common with bookmakers, but when they are, they’re incredibly in-demand. A no deposit free bet is precisely what it says, you can sign up to the bookie without having to wager any of your cash, meaning that you can sample their sportsbook free of charge.

  • Qualifying Free Bets or Free Bets Credits

Undoubtedly, the most common sign-up offer available from bookmakers. This will require you to place an opening first bet above certain minimum odds (usually 1/2) along with a minimum stake (usually £10) which will be listed in the T&Cs. Upon doing this you will then be credited with your Free Bets or Free Bet Credits which will be available to wager on any selection you like. Qualifying Free Bet offers are typically presented as ‘Bet £10 & Get £30 in Free Bets’.

Existing Customer Free Bets

Free bets are often associated with new customers only, but there are also plenty of promotions available for existing customers.

  • Loyalty Bonuses

These can be added at any time by the bookie you bet with. Occasionally, they’ll credit your account with a free bet if it's been inactive in an attempt to get you using the sportsbook again, or they may reward you with one should you bet regularly. One example of being rewarded for this is the Sky Bet Club, which is a free bet for existing customers. Bet £25 throughout the week and the following Monday you’ll receive a £5 free bet. This free bet can be used on football or any sport.

  • Reload Bonuses

This tends to be more with Casino, but reload bonuses are another way for existing customers to get a free bet. Reload bonuses are credited on top of what you deposit and give you some extra bonus funds to use in the casino or sportsbook where applicable.

  • Money Back Free Bets

Some bookies incentivise betting by offering money back free bets on some of the biggest sporting events around. Bet365’s bore draw money back Offer is perhaps the highest profile one, where should your game end goalless, they’ll refund your stake as Bet Credits on all correct scores, half time/full time or score cast bets on any match (T&Cs apply).

How Can I Claim My Free Bets?

When looking to claim your free bets, there are a number of things to consider. Reading the significant terms along with the full T&Cs is very important and there are some key pieces of information you need to look out for to make sure that you know what the offer fully entails.Below, we’ve included some questions that you should think about when thoroughly reading the terms and conditions before registering with a new bookmaker:

  • How much do I need to deposit?
  • What are the minimum odds required for my first bet?
  • Does my first bet need to be on a specific market or event?
  • How long will it be before my free bet(s) are credited?
  • When does this offer expire?
  • Is there a time limit/expiry date on my free bet(s)?
  • Do you need to bet a certain amount before you’re able to withdraw any potential winners?

These are just some of the questions that we think you should consider when signing up, but be sure to read all the significant terms along with the full T&Cs on the Bookmaker landing page.

What To Do If I Don’t Get My Free Bets?

When signing-up to a new bookmaker and placing your qualifying bet, it can make you slightly impatient waiting for your bonuses. But always make sure that you have met the criteria by placing the correct stake at the correct odds.

Some bookies can credit your free bets immediately after placing your qualifying bet, with others waiting until that first bet has settled. But if, for whatever reason, they’re not yet in your account, and you feel that they should be, there are a number of ways to enquire about it.

All bookmakers are available to call and email, with details found via their websites and apps. However, the most effective and quickest way to contact customer support is by live chat, which gives you support almost immediately. Waiting times tend to be quite low, and they can resolve your query quickly.

Can I withdraw free bets winnings?

Winnings from your free bets are always available to withdraw, but there are different criteria that need to be met for different bookmakers for you to do so. Some allow you to withdraw your free bet winnings (which exclude your stake) as cash straight after winning, which is common among most bookies.

But some have certain wagering requirements that have to be met. This means rolling over your winnings in order to make them withdrawable – more information on this can be found in the significant terms or the full terms and conditions.

Get The Most Value Out Of A Sign-Up Free Bet

There are a number of ways how to get the most value out of your free bets, whether you’re a new customer who’s just signed up or an existing customer. Most free bets are available to use anywhere within the bookie's sportsbook, giving you pretty much free rein to place your bet on what you want.

Free Bets can be redeemed on a single selection or if you want to bump up the odds and potentially maximize your winnings then you can go for a double, treble, or accumulators. If you’re unsure of what to redeem your free bets on then why not have a look at our Football Tips which are updated daily. These range from singles right through to Sky Bet Request A Bets, ranging from shorter odds to large odds, so there’s always something available if you’re looking to use your free bets.
